Table 6 Association of MS, Dys-HDL and CCA-IMT ((age and gender adjusted) (n = 129)

From: Metabolic syndrome in South Asian immigrants: more than low HDL requiring aggressive management

  1. CCA-IMT = Common carotid artery intima media thickness; MS = Metabolic Syndrome, defined according to IDF Central obesity and two or more of fasting glucose (≥100 mg/dl or T2D), obesity, HDL (≥40 mg/dl), Blood Pressure (≥130/≥85 mmHg); and Triglycerides (≥150 mg/d); Dys-HDL = Dysfunctional HDL measure by HDL Inflammatory index using cell free assay
